Thousands of people are offering their prayers to citizens of Mexico City after being struck by a 7.6 earthquake on Tuesday. Luckily there have been no immediate reports of major damage or injuries.

From AP:

A strong, long 7.6 earthquake with an epicenter in Guerrero state shook central southern Mexico on Tuesday, swaying buildings in Mexico City and sending frightened workers and residents into the streets.

The U.S. Geological Survey set the intensity at 7.6 and said the epicenter was 11 miles underground. Mexico’s National Seismological Survey said the temblor had an epicenter southwest of Ometepec.
